Charles' Got His Lego Minecraft Today


August 4, 2015

Oh my goodness only a few days away before school starts. Where did the time go? I’m not looking forward to getting up at 6:30 in the morning and my baby not with me during the day. Well, Charles will be in the First Grade, he is also celebrating his 7th birthday in September and he wants a day off on his birthday which is funny. I told him you don’t get a day off on your birthday even the US President don’t get day off on their birthdays. 

Like every time when I told him you can’t stay up late, then he will asked me why can’t I, mama? Why can daddy stay up late? He also doesn’t like bedtime. His reason, I’m not tired it’s not dark outside, why do I have to go to sleep? So many questions from my little one or he’s offering me a deal so he could sleep in our bed which Doug and I still like having him with us. 

Well for his school supplies we already shopped for them but not his backpack. He still likes his Sklylanders and Hot Wheels backpack from last year, hmmm that’s good! When I was in elementary I always wanted to have a new bag with matching umbrella and my school supplies. I was always real good at taking care of my stuff. For his clothes he has plenty of shirts to wear but not jeans. He’s getting taller yet skinny so finding the right size of waistline and length can be a problem. 

Anyway, Charles is very happy today he got his Lego Minecraft that he’s been waiting for so long then won a Pokemon game against his dad. He’s into Pokemon right now so his dad is teaching him how to play the game. Charles wants to play with other kids where Doug plays Magic tournaments every Thursday and some Fridays. How to handle the game when he wins or losses and interact with other kids around it is what we are wanting him to understand.

These Novels Will Keep Me Busy


August 3, 2015

I had quite a busy weekend. Doug, Charles and I drove all the way to Joplin to look at some Antique Stores just to do something fun the other day. Well, it was about an hour trip to Joplin, found four Antique Stores to keep us busy, Country Pickens, Flamingo Flea Market, Rangeline Antique Mall, and Southside Antique Mall. Southside Antique Mall is by far the best that I have ever been to. This place is clean and smells really good unlike many other stores. All the booths have spacious room so customers can easily walk in and out and the items are perfectly displayed to attract prospective customers. 

Hey, that customer was me as I bought a bunch of romance novels. Imagine 14 books for only $2 others were .40, .50, and .75 cents from the other Flea Market Stores. Isn’t it a great deal? These novels will keep me busy throughout the year as I have a bunch of them. Before, I was bored to death whenever Doug and I went to Flea Markets. Anything with glass I find also very interesting to look at, though I am not planning in collecting any of those in the future. As long as the romance novels I am reading always end up in happily ever after I will stay happy. I also will be ready to always start another book to read, I always look forward to keep the excitement going.
